Pierre Jackon might not get a call up from the D-League this year, and that’s unfortunate.
Jackson, a Pelicans rookie, set an NBA D-League record Tuesday night, scoring 58 points in a win over the Texas Legends.
Jackson is in the D-League, but his rights belong to New Orleans. He’s not under contract, so for a team to call him up, they’d have to acquire his rights from New Orleans.
I’m just shocked the Pelicans haven’t called him up or negotiated a deal.
